I think some of us can have aspects of aspergers/autism without meeting a full diagnosis. For example I have social interaction/skills deficits but not so much unusually intense interests (unless you count my obsessively checking, posting and saving articles from my RSS feeds often on mental health and politics) . I do have motor skills problems(dyspraxia?) that often go with aspergers.
